• A Texan who settled a lawsuit with his Mount Sopris neighbor for $750,000 over the cutting of trees is suing his insurance firm to pay half of the amount.
CourthouseNews.com reported Sept. 4 that Walter B. Stuart took State Farm Fire and Casualty and State Farm Lloyds to court. Stuart was sued by his neighbor, trial attorney Gerald Hosier, for cutting down trees on his neighbor’s property. Apparently, Stuart thought the property was his and he had his landscaper do the work. Hosier, in turn, sued him for trespassing and negligence.
CourthouseNews.com’s report says Stuart thought State Farm would cover his losses in the settlement, but it didn’t. Stuart’s suit was filed in Harris County Court in Texas.
